He also goes on to discuss the progress of the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA), a federal law that would unify how data privacy is treated throughout all fifty US states similar to GDPR within EU. https://www.drm.com/articles/adppa-american-data-privacy-protection-act/
While passing and enacting US federal laws is a slow process, it’s clear that no organization can deny that data privacy is becoming increasingly important, cannot be ignored and with or without forcing legislation it’s time to act now to understand the data your organization has. Northern can assist in that understanding starting with what type of data, how old is it and where it sits. Based on that prioritize and categorize the data to do further analysis identifying sensitive data and potential threats through faulty permissions. Once you understand your data you are able to act on your findings. Northern’s software provides an end-to-end solution allowing you to present the data to the relevant stakeholders, take actions such as move or quarantine and measure the level of success. This allows organizations to reduce the risk of their unstructured and semi-structured data footprint, across all their data repositories, both on-prem and in the cloud.
